Ahh Storage

Amazon Customer "Mackdady", Amazon

  • Summary: Love these green drives they are 'only' 5400 RPM's however with the large cache you dont notice except when the power bill comes, as they dont show up on it like the 7200 drives do. I have had not issues with longevity which also seems to be a perk with the 5400 drives they last longer than the 7200+ drives Imagine that!

problems but I don't know what the cause is!

  • Summary: I like the 3.5" drive over the 2.5" drive, bigger has more room to lose the heat. Like a bigger watt light ie(200w vs 50w) bulb is bigger for the same reason, the element fits the smaller bulb. Problem- harddrive-hd sitting in a dock, connected to a directv. To record movies. Connected by esata cable. Twice I had to cycle power to the dock to view (select a movie ) I could see the list but when selected screen went black & dock light did Not blink.

Solid Workhorses

DCrane, Amazon

  • Summary: I have about 100 of these drives alongside around 700 other drives in use for my business. These are solid drives that just go and go. All issues that have cropped up have been the fault of overly narrow focused, assumption laden hardware RAID controllers. This is quickly worked around by just switching to HBA's and software RAID, which in combination with these drives has proven much more versatile.

For use in NAS

  • Summary: We have 16 of these drives in a Promise VessRaid. It was put into service in October. One drive failed within the first month. No other failures to report for the first five months. The drives are very quiet and cool as you would expect. And fast enough for our storage needs. We use them in Raid 6 configurations. We were skeptical. At $240 per drive it is a big investment.

sparsame, aber nicht allzu schnelle Platte

profi-tom, geizhals.de
30 November 2012
  • Summary: Ich verwende diese Platten im RAID5 mit Adaptec controllern. Der Datendurchsatz ist nicht berauschend, aber wenn es um günstigen Speicherplatz für große Datenmengen mit niedrigem Stromverbrauch geht, ist diese Platte sehr zu empfehlen.

Mit neuer Firmware eine tolle Platte für RAID-Medienserver!

Markus Vollmer, geizhals.de
30 November 2012
  • Summary: Habe aktuell 10 von diesen Schönheiten mit der neuen Firmware 04.05G05 in einem HP Server im Einsatz. Funktioniert bislang (d.h. 7 Wochen) ohne größere Probleme. Vor dem Firmwareupdate hatte ich auch das Problem, dass bei einem warmen Reboot die Platten nicht bereit waren und daher nicht erkannt wurden. Ein Abschalten und Neustarten war der Workaround. Das ist nun aber behoben und aus meinem RAID6 ist auch mit der alten Firmware nie eine Platte rausgeflogen.
